Ok, let me it be know I have no issues with mineral oil but some folks do. It’s difficult finding a cleansing oil without mineral oil as one of the ingredients and the most commonly asked question I get about any cleansing oil I review is, “Does it contain mineral oil?”
Second most commonly asked question, “Any cheap cleansing oil recommendations that are easy to find in the US?” Although cleansing oil is a common part of the Asian beauty regime it’s not something that’s quite caught on in the US in my opinion. Hell, if it did, we’d all go to the drugstore and have our pick of any number of cleansing oils just like any good Asian woman can at their local drugstore in Japan, Korea, etc….it’s simply not the case in the US in my opinion. Some brands do have cleansing oil available however you probably didn’t even know they had one. MAC has one, surprised? I think we commonly associate cleansing oil with Shu Uemura and ouch expensive.
Want readily available?
Want something to easily clean away makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara?
Want it without mineral oil?
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the ticket.
Made without mineral oil, allowing for a deep clean, and readily available for purchase plus an inexpensive price tag keeps this cleansing oil at the top of the awesome pile.
Scared of cleansing oil? Weird idea isn’t it? Taking oil and proceeding to rub it on your face…well it could prove a great idea for those of us with dry skin but even than it sounds a tad on the strange side…wouldn’t your face feel oily and greasy after use?
No way. Cleansing Oil rinses clean away and allows even the most stubborn, I’m sticking around until you die makeup to be removed easily!
The new Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palettes have launched on counter, I seen ‘em at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom while shopping yesterday so if you’re lemming is strong do check ‘em out.
Best news? They are also at Sephora. This is fab if you got a gift certificate for the Holidays and wondering what you want to splurge on.
The palettes at first glance featured some cooler shades of pink but after getting the palettes I realize one is actually cool and geared more towards a youthful audience and one is warmer and more grown up for those who want a more sophisticated pink.
Let’s check out the Bobbi Brown Powerful Palette which is the warmer and maturer of the two!
Flirt! Cosmetics has a nifty little lipgloss that branced off from their latest fragrance, Rock n Rebel. Think Ed Hardy an you’ll pretty much have Flirt!’s Rock n Rebel Collection idea.
These little tubes are $12 each and available in two shades. I didn’t expect a whole lot from these but surprised was I….
Here’s a few swatches and a babble about the new MAC & Mickey Contractor Eyeshadow.
At first glance the MAC & Micky Contractor Collection does so deceive. I was thinking, “eh, probably nothing here to see…”
However, there is a gem or two in the rough even if you think the collection might not be suited to your skin tone. The shadows are all wearable in my opinion and one are two are really keepers, the fluidlines will easily be a must have if you’re a fan since the colors are stunning gem shades, and believe it or not the concealers in the lighter ranges might work well if you prefer a more lighter concealer (I always go lighter with my concealer).
Obviously MAC is gearing the collection towards a specific skin type so not everyone will be able to take advantage of some of the base options in this collection however the color products are definitely a go particularly if you like nudes (the lipstick shades are all very nude-ish and beige) or bolder shades (the shadows are all extra bold).
Let’s have a look at some swatches.
